What's the Limit? (excerpt)

Some things cut so deeply
That it’s hard to get beyond
And I wonder what’s the limit
I should take when being wronged

Where’s the line that crosses over
From the spirit to the flesh
Which is “principle” or “pride”
It’s confusing when they mesh

Isn’t self-respect a factor
Or does that somehow get lost
When we’re learning to be humble
Is respect part of the cost

As you see, I need discernment
And your power deep within
For without it I am certain
I would very surely sin
